Update: no more diapers

Grandpa Gay is visiting, and Rosie proudly told him "No diapers" yesterday when he asked if she's wearing them overnight. I got lots of great advice (mostly on facebook) in response to my post and am planning to get a waterproof mattress pad soon. So far she's only had a couple overnight accidents, but on the other hand if she gets up at 3 or 4 to use the toilet she has a hard time getting back to sleep.

I was up with her this morning from about 3:30 to 6:30, at which point I completely zonked and Brian gave me another hour's sleep.

She's getting better at getting to the potty or toilet in time to poop in it, but trying to be that sensitive is clearly also sending her to the potty at times when she doesn't have to go. We're trying to be positive, and also set a routine. It seems to be going really well.

[Yesterday she did go trick-or-treating, but utterly refused to wear the wonderful rocketship costume her dad made for her, so sadly, no pictures of her in costume for today. So here's a picture of her in the Robot shirt Brian made for her instead; her preschool is all wearing robot shirts today.]
